...it should be a single Dahlia (or a whole bunch if you feel daring). Since we are in the middle of Dahlia season, I've been spotting them on ever single corner around here. So, my plan is to get one humongous stem that is just about to fully open and keep it on my bedside table for as long as I can.
Psst, here is a great tip to make sure your Dahlia will last for a long time: Since Dahlias don't really like water, give them only a few inches at a time. Plus, it's essential to make sure the water you give them is the hottest you can get out of your tap. It makes all the difference.
Have I convinced you? What's your favourite Dahlia colour? xo
P.S: Swoonworthy flower market.
P.P.S: Paper bag bouquets.
